A slice of Suffolk countryside is on the market for £795,000 - but the new owner will have to build their Grand Designs style new home.
The 'rural paradise' of 20 acres at Great Wenham in the Stour Valley has more than 4,000 trees and a boating lake complete with its own island.
The site has planning permission to create a striking modern home that blends into the beautiful landscape with a grass roof and would be worth over £2m when finished.
The current owners, a couple in their mid-seventies, bought the site in 1987 and have carried out a lot of improvements, including landscaping and clearing, as well as planting oaks, willows, weeping willows, elms, pine and ash.
The main lake is about two acres and is surrounded by reed beds which are a haven for wildlife.
